Reviews for Basque Museum & Cultural Center Inc
The Basque Museum and Cultural Center in Boise Idaho is the only Museum of its kind in the United States. I had the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors from 2003 - 2005. Last year, I participated in a series of strategic planning workshops to chart preferred scenarios for the Museum's Future. The museum's vision is to be "an international leader showcasing Basque history and culture and connecting people to Basque experiences in the world." I remain impressed with how well this small organization is able to have such a big impact in the community. They are commited to inclusiveness and often provide their facilities to other groups and organizations that need space. All of their activities are designed to further eduactional and cultural understanding. This is a worthy organization that will creatively make great use of any donated equipment. I encourage you to get to know the Basque Museum for yourself. (Tim Mitchell, 208-396-4020; firstname.lastname@example.org).
